Ranking potential trade packages for Jimmy Butler

26 September, 2018, 10:58 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • The Cavs are said to be pursuing a deal with the T Wolves for All Star swingman Jimmy Butler

The Timberwolves held their media day on Monday and Butler was excused from participating, but he did take his physical.

After reports of some differences on the matter between coach/president of basketball Tom Thibodeau and owner Glen Taylor, there may be some alignment of focus to trade Butler sooner rather than later. But the list of organizations interested in talking further with Minnesota is significant, league sources said: Brooklyn, Detroit, Houston, the LA Clippers, Miami, Philadelphia, Portland and Sacramento are among the teams interested in probing for deals.

There's been speculation that Butler clashed with some of his other high-profile teammates, including Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, and Thibodeau's comments didn't necessarily refute that notion. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski says that at the NBA Board of Governers meeting Taylor told prospective spirits for Butler to contact him directly if they can not get past general manager Scott Layden. "So when I look at what was the impact [of having Butler], it was huge", Thibodeau said, adding that he always knew there was risk involved in trading for Butler given his contract situation.

Only time will tell whether or not the Heat are able to make the most attractive offer and get the deal one.




There were possible rumors that Butler would be traded by late-Sunday night, but alas that didn't happen and here we are waiting for the Wolves to make a decision.

However, owner Glen Taylor said in a meeting with other front office executives recently in NY that Jimmy Butler is on the trade block, and not only that, Taylor is demanding that Thibodeau and Layden get to work finding a trade partner as soon as possible.

As for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the idea would clearly be to pair Butler and Kevin Love, and ideally switch from semi-rebuilding to reloading. More money is available to Butler if he plays out his contract and enters the open market in 2019.
